Pinterest success!

Pin It
My "Pinning" has gotten out of control!  I Pin everything from recipes, nail polish colors, craft ideas, sewing projects, cute puppies and more!  I wonder if I'll ever complete even half of the craft ideas I have Pinned.  At least I can mark one off the list, breaking glass with nail polish remover!


This project ended up on Pinterest from the Crafty Scrappy Happy blog.   Her tutorial is great and it actually works! 

Step 1: pick out a wine bottle
Step 2: wrap yarn around the bottle 5 times
Step 3: slide off the yarn, dip in nail polish remover and slide back on
Step 4: light the yarn on fire
Step 5: once the flame burns out, dip the bottle in cold water
Step 6: SNAP!


As you can see, my broken edge didn't turn out perfectly straight, but I'm okay with that.  It gives it a rustic feel.  Use sandpaper to smoothe out the sharp edges.

The next step for me is turning this into a candle, kind of like this.  I'll show you that in a different tutorial.

Were you crafty this weekend?

Happy Monday!
